I joined Bay Area Fit in 2015 to become more physically active and stay healthy. When the season began I joined the Purple Walkers Half Marathon group. Soon thereafter I decided to try running and became immediately hooked. Since then I enjoyed running so much I decided to take the challenge and moved up to the Blue Half Marathon group. Then after carefully thinking about it I became so excited about running that the challenge became even greater. I decided why not run a full marathon and so I finally ended up with the Red Marathon group. Mind you that prior to joining USA Fit Bay Area I had never ran before. Since joining the club I have completed one ultra, one marathon, six half marathons, two ten milers and numerous 5K’s. And I am not finished yet.

I enjoy doing intervals and running and walking. I am working on increasing my speed in order to improve my time during my races. One of the perks of running is I enjoy the training but best of all the medals “Bling” I get from the races at the finish!

There are a lot of things I like about running. You become healthier, more in shape, less visits to the doctor, but the best thing is the many friendships the club has brought into my life. I have met some of the kindest, most supportive and motivating people that have now become my long lasting friends. Bay Are Fit has become indeed my second family.

I had the courage to start, the strength to endure and the determination to finish. I am excited to be part of the coaching team and look forward to helping you achieving your goals.
